Developing Fiction Film Ideas for Micro-Budget Production

Monday, November 16, 2015 from 5:30pm

Developing Fiction Film Ideas for Micro-Budget Production Join us for a 2.5-hour workshop facilitated by Josh Epstein, producer and co-writer of Eadweard, the Eadweard Muybridge biopic created and shot in Vancouver and currently screening at film festivals around the world. Josh will touch on writing for micro-budget production, adapting a stage play to a screen play (Eadweard is based on the play ’Studies in Motion’) and how to develop a proposal for the Telefilm Micro-Budget Production Program. YFS is a partner in Telefilm’s Micro-Budget feature film program and will soon be announcing a call for submission for the 2016 Recommendation Phase. Josh Epstein is one of Canada’s most versatile actors. He has appeared in leading roles on stages across the country and produced and co-written award-winning films. Josh produced, co-wrote and acted in Eadweard, his company’s first feature film starring Michael Eklund, Sara Canning, Christopher Heyerdahl and Torrance Coombs. He has a first look TV deal with Lark who is owned by NBC Universal and has two feature films in development.
